spent the morning remembering those in my family who have served in the Canadian Armed Forces…

dug out a book which had some information on my mom and dad’s service

it also included this poem which she wrote…

  
George’s dad also served, and he died just a few days before Remembrance Day so it added to the specialness of the day for us…

and my son-in-law is currently in the Air Force…

enjoyed watching the service on Parliament Hill which has been a tradition for as long as I can remember…

then headed to the Zoo with my kids and some of their friends – little girls, lol…

  
not everyone wanted their picture taken… although I did catch one sliver of someone…

it was very chilly and I should have had another layer on and a pair of gloves… luckily was able to borrow a pair of my grandsons’ gloves…

happily we stopped for some hot chocolate along the way and also got to see some polar bears while we were enjoying it… they are very dirty just now… not exactly white…

  

there was quite a group of us, lol…

  
thank goodness for my toque… if my head wasn’t covered I would have been absolutely frozen… although I was very cold by the time we left…

wore one out for my hot tub tonight too… definitely getting cooler out there…
